Win A Disc Wednesdays Are Here: Tiny Cool by Princess Katie & Racer Steve

Princess Katie & Racer Steve

Welcome to our new ChiIL Mama Win A Disc Wednesdays
We'll be introducing you to some rockin' kids music including old 
favorites, hot off the presses, and soon to be released discs. 
Then to sweeten the deal, each week we'll be giving away a disc.

April 28-May 5th Win Tiny Cool
the soon to be released 3rd studio CD 
by Princess Katie & Racer Steve
If you're ready to rock out to some truly funny tunes and skits that will 
have adults laughing right along with their littles, you've gotta check 
out Tiny Cool. We particularly loved the multicultural flavor of 
"Clelia's Party", a Latin-style fiesta song. Princess Katie is invited to 
sing at her Hispanic friend's birthday party, and amid her excitement, 
she agonizes that the only Spanish she knows is off a menu. 
We also enjoyed the favorite things song, "Tube Socks", a fun pop 
number that gets its "pop" from pizzicato strings.  

"Kids Rock!" gets everyone up and dancing, while "Tiny Cool" is the 
kind of James Brown style funk tune, you don't really mind getting 
stuck in your head.  My son's favorite is the final cut on the disc, 
"Japanese Robot", a super synth ballad about a robot that runs 
on love, not batteries.  

We were all impressed with the variety in musical styles. 
Whether you like rock ballads, Motown or Dick Dale-esque surf songs,  
Tiny Cool has something for everyone. And, if the tunes aren't 
enough, there are 4 hilarious skits interspersed throughout the disc.

Husband and wife team, Katie O'Sullivan and Steve Borne have 
merged their collective backgrounds in music and sketch/ improv 
comedy experience into a humorous hybrid. Even my husband laughed 
during "The Disenchanted Forest" skit, when one of the characters 
proclaims "What a buzz kill!" upon discovering he's only a garden 
snake and not really a venomous rattle snake.

This fun, funky album even appealed to the decidedly 
Anti-Princessy Sagezilla. And despite the outward appearance of 
gender role cliches, the lyrics exude a respect for children and an 
empowering, be your own self message. Tiny Cool retails for $15.00 
and will be released May 4th. It's aimed at little rockers, ages 2-8, 
with a run time of 38 minutes.

Look for Princess Katie & Racer Steve, in person, as they're 
kicking off a nationwide "Kids Rock!" tour. Check out their web site for 
tour dates and to purchase discs.

Childhood's too short, and road trips too long, to listen to annoying, 
poorly produced kids' discs. So check in every Wednesday and 
ChiIL Mama will make your kiddy commutes much more enjoyable 
for the whole family.
